I have come across books written about the 22nd NY Volunteer Infantry and the 118th, but until this week I didn't realize that there was one written about the 93rd - the third regiment in which many Johnsburg men served. Fay and Ray Robinson have graciously loaned me their copy of "History of the Ninety-Third", inscribed by John M. Martratt of Co. B and F of the 93rd. It is a 639 page history of this regiment published in 1895. I Can't wait to share with you all I find out!
If you have any pictures, diaries or information on the men listed below, or from past lists in this column, please contact me at 215-3009 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
